Tims Take

Finding creativity among seatbelts, floor mats, headlights, and seat cushions!

on Aug 27, 2008

This challenge is about innovation using untraditional materials. Our last challenge of this nature was the first challenge, Gristedes. Frankly, the results of that challenge were hugely disappointing, so this is a second change for the designers to wow the judges with their creativity and aptitude for innovation. I know that they have it in them, but we need to see it! In the end, I'm extremely pleased and excited about their achievements. But, will the judges be?

The designers have one day for this challenge. Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe is our guest judge. And season three finalist Laura Bennett stands in for the ailing Nina Garcia. (Thank you, Laura! Come back, too. You're a fabulous judge!) The winner will receive immunity.
